Adam, I'm trying to get in touch with Brian Jones regarding a post from some years back:

I'm struggling with trying to figure out an XPresso setup to spin car tires over distance so I can just "pull" the car object along a spline and have the tires rotate automatically.

Perhaps you might be able to help me?

Thanks.
